I disagree with the explanation in that link. If going by that quote alone, it seems the opposite of what that person is saying.
He's saying have to decide where you are going or will wander aimlessly.
While my take on it is: Even if you don't know where you are going, still go forward and will eventually find what you are looking for. Better than to do nothing while still trying to decide. Because the best decisions are made through experience.
Real life example: Don't prevent yourself from entering college because you are undecided on what to do. Taking various courses will help you decide, and at the same time remove the disillusions of what you thought might like.
